Map Cafe restaurant is set within a glass pod within the Larco museum's courtyard in Cusco. The food was excellent and beautifully presented, service was impeccable and flexible - at night there is only a set menu, however the restaurant was happy to provide just one dish to one of our friends who wasn't hungry. It was a memorable meal.

MAP is a very small restaurant located in the Larco Herrera museum in Cusco. If you don't know about it, you wouldn't really know it is there. While it is in the museum, on a square across from the best hotel in Cusco (El Monasterio), you don't really know there is a museum there. You must come back on a... More

After two weeks in the area, we treated ourselves to the set menu, 3 course dinner. Very romantic, candles all over, calm music, very relaxed low key staff. Food was very tasty, rich bold flavour. Best meal we had in Cusco. In comparison to other restaurants it is double/ triple the price but well worth it. When we got home... More

We had a group of 20 from a Celebrity post cruise. Service was superb but we had too much food. The dessert was a fantastic chocolate thing that was really tasty but kept me awake all night.

Great food inside the pre columbian art museum! Try the local aguaymanto pisco sour and the set dinner menu. Try the soup with pastry filling.

Good food, but served very quickly. We were told that this is normal in Peru. No time to enjoy the lingering flavours, next course arrived!

This was another great experience while our time in Cusco. The location of this place is incredible plus the ambiance rivals a top-notch restaurant in the US. The service is good and the food is extraordinary. Starting from the bread to the appetizers and the main course, everything is delicious. I would highly recommend this place on your visit to...

This lovely restaurant is tucked away in the Museum courtyard. We had dinner in the evening which was very romantic. The menu is extensive from appetizers to desserts. We were with a group and everyone had something different. The food presentations were truly works of art and delicious. A soloist played a wooden harp - very beautiful. The very best... More

MAP is the cafe of the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art (MAP) in Cusco. The museum is housed in a colonial mansion on the site of an Inca building in the delightful Plaza de las Nazarenas. In the beautiful, peaceful courtyard you can find the MAP cafe which serves excellent Peruvian cuisine. Three different people recommended it to us when they... More

Map Cafe is located in the courtyard of the Columbia artifacts museum in Cusco, Peru. We went last night for our last meal in Peru and I am so glad we did. The setting was super modern inside an old historic setting. The wait staff were super friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. I recommend the mushroom ravioli... More
